Once again we find ourselves with a host of events and activities to look forward to in the coming weeks. Many people will find themselves involved in some form or another!
This weekend sees the celebrations of the Queens diamond Jubilee with the highest number of street parties being held for decades!
A lot of fun will be had but we need to take a moment to assess our home security situation to ensure we don’t make ourselves vulnerable to thieves while we are outside enjoying the activities.
It can be easy to be complacent with regard to protecting your property when you are busy, transferring things from your home to the street perhaps, or where there is alcohol involved. In order for you not to become a victim of a robbery it is best to put some plans in place.
When there are multiple people coming and going into the property it can be tricky to coordinate security. If you leave the door open or off the latch you are asking for trouble. It doesn’t take long for a burglary to take place. You may only be in a neighbour’s garden! There will be opportunistic thieves looking to target unprotected properties assuming many people will be out of their properties celebrating the jubilee.
It may be hard to coordinate who has the key, if you are the last one out etc; many people find themselves locked out at events such as these due to the confusion. This needs to be ascertained prior to the event with security reinforced amongst other members of the family.
Do not leave your key in a hiding place for convenience!
Window locks are just as important as door locks, Have you checked you haven’t left your windows unlocked. Many of us have opened our windows during this recent hot weather.
